“The Angels Sing” is a Sam Cooke-inspired tune written on a screen porch in Smithville, Missouri by Jenny Parrott, half of the Austin-based duo Loves It.  For a band that is on tour most of the time, songs tend to arrive on the fly and are influenced by the ever-changing surroundings.  As Parrott explains, “We were at a festival bonding with other musicians, and I was overcome by the experience. I really felt just how much I wanted music to be my life, and how these longings can be a forbidden desire. Hence, the angels are singing to me, and giving me advice to be cautious. It’s a reminder to stop looking ahead so much and enjoy the day.”

Born in Austin in 2010, this duo of dual songwriters (Jenny Parrott and Vaughn Walters) has already performed hundreds of shows in the US, Europe and Asia since that time. The harmony driven pair plays with veneration for tradition, and a determination to bring a modern voice to their favorite folk, country, gospel and punk sounds.  It’s welcoming music that has already drawn the attention of Rolling Stone and Austin’s NPR-affiliate KUTX, which have both featured the duo’s tune “Wild,” the first single from the band’s sophomore album All We Are, scheduled for release tomorrow.

Of the monster trucks seen in the video for “Wild,” Walters explains, “They’re right next to my folk’s house in Macomber, so we asked if we could use them in the shoot and they were cool with it.  It’s gotta be one of the greatest video props going!” The entire production was completed by director Geoff Hoskinson with a budget of $300, some food and a keg of beer.  As Parrott recalls, “By the time the keg ran out, Geoff’s battery was about done as well!”  When they aren’t making homespun music videos, Loves It is touring, a subject the band recently discussed as part of an in-depth interview with touring bible Pollstar.

“We played 200 shows in 2011 supporting our first album,” says Walters.  “It would have been 220 shows, but we had to cancel a month of shows because we got plowed by a beer truck.” Fully functioning again, the band is out on the road through the end of the year.  See below for complete tour dates.  All We Are by Loves It is scheduled for release on October 29th via Team Austin.

Vaughn Walters and Jenny Parrott of Loves It are available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
